    Hi everyone,

    Am confounded by a problem that I am having with hosting Apache server or Personal Websharing on my Mac OS X (10.3.9). Here's the situation:

    - Using DSL so I've gotten DynDNS service which detects the Dynamic IP address for my computer
    - the Mac has a static IP address of
    - the WRT54G has a local IP address of

    Now, when an outside friend types in the url from DynDNS they do not connect to the "Hello World" webpage that is currently being served up by Personal Web Sharing. They simply get nothing.

    I've done all of the port forwarding (from and from the Linksys manual) and I've given static IPs to all of the machines on the network. I don't know what is going wrong but one clue may be that when I look beneath the "Status" tab and click on "Router", for Internet Configuration Type, I see an IP address of

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Be sure that you can ping this dynamic name before you go insane trying to worry about ports. If you arent able to ping it, the name is probably not setup correctly. Let us know if you can ping

    Thanks jgutz20 for the suggestion. I just went to Administration -> Diagnostics -> Ping Test on the router; typed in the url (dynamic host name) and it went fine..."O% Packet Loss".
